Nanotubes behave as optical antennae
(PhysOrg.com) -- Just as walkie-talkies transmit and receive radio waves, carbon nanotubes can transmit and receive light at the nanoscale, Cornell researchers have discovered.
No-photon laser: Physicists demonstrate 'superradiant' laser design
Physicists at JILA have demonstrated a novel "superradiant" laser design, which has the potential to be 100 to 1,000 times more stable than the best conventional visible lasers. This type of laser could boost ...

Best view yet of merging galaxies in distant universe
Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, and other telescopes, an international team of astronomers has obtained the best view yet of a collision that took place between two galaxies when the ...
Chile's ALMA probes for origins of universe
(AP)—Earth's largest radio telescope is growing more powerful by the day on this remote plateau high above Chile's Atacama desert, where visitors often feel like they're planting the first human footprints ...
Research team develops tattoo-like skin thermometer patch
New antenna spreads good vibrations in fusion plasma
If you want to catch a firefly, any old glass jar will do. But when you're trying to bottle a star—the goal of fusion energy research—the bottle needs to be very special. A tokamak is one type of fusion ...
Georgia Tech researchers propose terabit level graphene antenna
Bacterial photosynthetic reaction center harvests more light thanks to tailored organic antenna
Getting energy from sunlight: Plants have it down; humans have not quite got the knack for it. Hybrid systems made from natural and synthetic components could open new routes for harvesting solar energy. ...
16 million-year-old amber specimen reveals unknown animal behaviors
Stunning images, including video footage, from a CT scan of amber have revealed the first evidence of any creature using an adult mayfly for transport.
ALMA: World's largest ground-based space array to open in Chile
In a super-arid desert at an altitude of 5,000 meters, with almost no humidity or vegetation, the world's largest ground-based astronomy project opens for business on Wednesday ready to probe the universe ...
